We've got a nice, quiet little river community here
As this postseason has gone on, I’ve been asked a few times by fellow scribes for food recommendations in STL. And now with the potential of a rainout looming either tonight or tomorrow, it occurs to me that some of you may be in St. Louis from out of town and wondering how to spend a free evening. Here’s what I’ve got…
* The best meal I’ve had in St. Louis, regardless of price, was at the Sidney Street Cafe. Steak au poivre? Yes, please.
* As a lunch option, there’s the Crown Candy Kitchen. Sadly, I’ve never been there. But people love it, and every out-of-towner I’ve ever pointed there came back raving.
* Hard to go wrong with a good brewpub, and we have a very good one here — the Schlafly Tap Room. Excellent beer, good food, and in particular, their fries are the best I’ve ever had.
* Place to go for just a beer? An unusual beer? Growler’s Pub, easily. Unbelievable beer selection, friendly service, good jukebox.
There’s plenty more, and by no means are these the only four best establishments in St. Louis. But (with the one obvious exception) they’re personal favorites of mine. Enjoy. But really, let’s just get these two games in and not have to worry about rainout contingencies, what say?
